The Braintrust Consulting Group will offer a Certified Scrum Developer (CSD)-Track Two training class in Nashville, TN at Homewood Suites – Brentwood, the week of April 14-18, 2014.

The Braintrust Consulting Group has bundled a series of classes into a complete track to earn Scrum Developer certification, as outlined by The Scrum Alliance. The Certified Scrum Developer Track Two class combines our Scrum Essentials class, Agile Engineering Practices class, and Test Driven Development class into an in-depth five-day training.

Scrum is a simple yet incredibly powerful set of principles and practices that help teams deliver products in short cycles, enabling fast feedback, continual improvement, and rapid adaptation to change. As the leading Agile development framework, Scrum has predominantly been used for software development, but it is also proving to be effective in efforts far beyond.

This class is ideal for someone who has an understanding of Scrum principles and has learned specialized Agile engineering skills. The CSD Track Two is intended for professional software developers who are on a Scrum team and want to understand how Scrum and agile engineering practices are applied. It’s also ideal for candidates who already have their Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) certification or developers who are interested in move advanced Test Driven Development (TDD) techniques.

Members of the Project Management Institute will earn 35 Professional Development Units (PDUs) toward maintaining their existing credentials by attending this class.
